Whether you workout before work or after work, chances are if you workout outside you'll be working out in the darkness or very dim light.

And one of my major pet peeves is to see runners or walkers or cyclists or really anyone out and about who doesn't make sure that they can be seen.

Because the majority of my workouts are before Hubby goes to work, and usually I'm solo, safety has always been a priority for me. And when I say that I won't run outside in the dark / low light/ fog without my Noxgear, I'm serious.

8 Mile Run

I went for an 8 mile run today. It was misting rain and chilly. With the hip issues, I probably shouldn't have run the hills, but I didn't want to have to drive somewhere to then run. Around mile 2, I could feel myself struggling. I knew I had a long way to go if I wanted to complete the loop (which consists of running up part of Peter's Mountain). I turned the music up on my ipod and pushed through it. I didn't know how far I had gone because I changed my route mid run. I was happy and surprised to discover that I had gone farther than what I had originally thought.

I knew my feet were cold and wet, but I didn't realize just how wet. My feet were SOAKED, and I was really chilled. My fingers were so cold that I had a hard time taking my shoes off.

But I'm pleased with myself. I am still slow though. I ran a 10:40 pace for 8 miles. My hip hurts, but not as bad as I anticipated.  I'm glad I was able to get it in today.
